Been there, done that a few times!

You need a telescoping, magnetic wand. It looks like a teacher's blackboard "pointer".
It pulls out to about 2 feet, and has a magnet at the end. Some styles have a magnetic that is hinged to the tip of the wand.

Available at:

1. Auto supply/Home Repair stores, for fishing screws out of engines, etc.

2. Anywhere that home canning supplies are sold. (Even some general supermarkets.) Here they are used for fishing metal canning lids out of boiling water.

3. Stationery, or Office Supply-type stores. Buy the actual telescopic pointer, and glue your own magnet to the end.

You didn't drop the screw into the guts of the machine, didya?!

Hope that helps,

NAS unreachable

That means the NAS has an IP outside of your network range and your router doesn't know how to route traffic to it. Say your home network is This is the network address. Your subnet mask is This means the first three groups of numbers are your network so your network is 192.168.0.X the X can be any address from 1-254. The X is also considered the host. Now say the NAS has been set to an IP, maybe as default, to See the 1 in there is a different network than Your router doesn't know how to route to this network.

I dropped my samung pixon in the toilet but i think all the water is out but it doesnt turn on

DO NOT try to turn it on and DO NOT use a hari dryer (it'll push moisture into unreachable places) Put your phone in a bag of rice and leave it there for a day or 2 (rice absorbs moisture) Try turning it on again... If this doesnt work , nothing will !
Please leave me a rating if I've helped you :)
